Tribune Tandem, Fully 8,000 people heard the Dolliver- Coie debate at Hutnboldt last Saturday. Judge Cole opened With a speech of 65 minutes, Dolltver followed with an hour and a quarter, and Cole closed in 25 minutes. The judge is a smooth talker, much lilto Gov. Boles in his manner. He presented the usual free-silver argument, and Dolllver got after it in regulation Dolliverfashion. In closing the judge made much of the calamity argument. Both speakers had their adherents, hut the general sentiment is that the anti-free-silver side had the best of it. Dolliver strengthened the sound money cause. She \Vi\s Equal to tlio Occasion. Armstrong Journal: The good wife of a well-known farmer over in Kossuth county recently accompanied her husband to town, and, when he learned that his wife would have to wear glasses, remarked that had he been aware of her deformity at the time he certainly would not have married her. The lady adjusted her newly acquired spectacles and after coolly surveying him replied that had she seen him as clearly as she could with her "specs" ho certainly would not have had the opportunity. A Wesley Project. Fred. Corey has a new scheme on foot. He proposes excavating a large pond on his lots north of the track, at Wesley. He will then sink a deep well, erect a windmill and fill the pond with water. In the winter he will freeze enough ice to supply the town, and at odd times will use it as a skating, rink. As it will be stocked with' fish he will sell fishing privileges during the summer at so much a bite. The Reporter says that later on he may erect a hotel and start a regular summer resort. Will Use Water at West Bend. G. S. Wright of Garfield has shown his public spirit by offering to donate and put in free of cost to the city of West Bend a public watering trough, with automatic valve, allowing only a certain amount of water to be drawn at at one time. The Journal says: It is a generous gift from Mr. Wright, and will be a benefit not only to the public but will save lots of water that is now wasted by the present arrangement. The council at its last meeting unanimously accepted the offer. To Compete with Dolllver. The non-partisan silver men will meet at Humboldt next Tuesday to nominate a candidate for congress. It is expected that the democrats, who meet at Boone, Aug. 20, will endorse. Prof. Seeley is Out. Prof. H. G. Seeley, one time writing teacher in the Algona Normal school, has quit his partner, B. H.

Mr. G-oss, in his "Recollections of a Private," quotes the remarks of a Confederate about two famous leaders under whom ho had fought. This man said of Stonewall Jackson, "If yon tms had some good general like him, I reckon you uns could lick we uns." When asked "whether be had ever' seen General Lee, he replied: "Yes; I was a sort of orderly for Uncle Rohert for awhile. He's a mighty calrnlike man when a fight is going on." This story is told of General John B. Magruder: '' Our General Magruder thinks a powerful heap of what he eats and wears. Ho allers has a right smart of truck. "There was a Texas feller onetime who had straggled from his brigade, and he were a pert one, he were, stran- ,ger. He were hungry enough to eat a general, buttons and all—that Texas feller were.' Ho saw Magruder's table all spread, with a heap of good fixiu's on it, and I'll be hanged if he didn't walk in, pert as you please, grabbed a knife and fork and opened fire all along the line on them fixin's. "Magruder heard something in his tent and hurried in and asked that Texas chap what brought him thar. The Texan 'lowed ho were hungry. Then the general, stiff and grandlike, said, ' Do you know, sir, at whose table you are eatin? 1 "The Texas chap, he kept drivin in the pickets on them chick'ns, and he said to the gen'ral, said he, 'No, old boss, and I ain't no ways par tic 'lar, neither, since I've come solderin.' " "What did Magruder do?" asked a Yankee listener. "Do? Why, he saw them chicken flx- in's were spiled, and he jesfc put his arm under his coattail, pulled his hat over his eyes and walked out. And that Texas hoss didn't leave anything on that thar table 'cept the plates—not even his compliments. "Who were he? Well, no matter. He hadn't no manners, he hadn't. He were powerful hungry, stranger, that chap were." A Fortunate Accident. "I am lost!" thepriina donna sobbed. "My years of hard study have gone for nothing." "Alas, what is the matter?" asked her maid. "My prospects are ruined, all through a -wretched accident. Just as I was approaching the end of my aria a horrid bug flew on the stage and lit on my neck," "And you screamed?" "I did. What else could I do? It was my last scene and I had no chance tore* deem myself," The bell sounded and the maid announced a man from the theater, "Show him in," said the prima don- na. "I may as well meet my fate at once. It is my dismissal from the company. " "Sense me, ma'am, fur disturbio you," said the .visitor, "but de manager wants to know did you run away from your curtain recall 'cause you was took sick," "No. I am perfectly well" "AH right.
